Tuesday.....

One more picture taken
&
only one to do
the book is on its way
to the printer!
What a beautiful home this was
to visit 
&
take photographs.
They had the cutest chicken coop
but
just too much shade.
I can hardly wait for the 
book to be printed and assemble.
Patience is the word for today....

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine....


 Happy May To You All!
I was so happy to be asked
to do a block for
the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine.
&
here it is!
I used cotton fabric for the background, 
beautiful hand dyed wool for 
the applique pieces
and beautiful
Painter's Threads for 
the embroidery 
and ribbon flowers.
 The picture in the magazine 
is a little on the 
dark side,
so if anyone would
like me to send them 
a photo please just
email me
I think the block would make
a beautiful fall pillow
or 
cute little wallhanging
with 4 blocks! 
My husband and I
were sick 
most of 
March & April
with some sort of weird flu
but I kept working on my new
book when I could sit up for a few hours.
I have about one more week
until its ready for the printer!
Today I got to take a few pictures
and I love the way they turned out.
I have 4 copies of the magazine
to share with 4 of you!
If you please leave a comment,
I will pick the winners
when we return from a short trip!
 
I hope your spring is great so far,
thank you for visiting!

Thursday morning.....

Good morning all you
dear friends!
I hope you had a wonderful
January
&
your February is 
turning out to be just as wonderful....
January is my month to 
finish some old 
projects
&
this year I got
3 of them done!
I didn't feel so good 
all month so I 
sat and finished some
cross stitch pieces.
This is a Shepherd's Bush
designed with a few 
of my own little touches
here and there...
I finally got some medicine
&
I'm pain free now
&
on to designing pieces for a new
book!
Its all about flowers.
There will 4 mini quilts
little treasures to go each quilt
&
I cannot decide if there will
be one big quilt...
 
Happy Valentine's Day
from me & Toby....

Day Nine of Christmas Joy....

 Goodness here we
are 
the second day 
of Christmas week...
I found this glass
cabinet in a warehouse
somewhere in Oklahoma
(really was way out in the country),
there was a matching one
with legs,
so wish I had brought it now...
I want to share with you all
a recipe
I made up!
Now that is amazing!!
but they are so good and so very healthy 
for you!
Mix the following:
1 cup flour, 1/4 cup wheat germ, 1/4 cup bran or oat flour,
1 cup oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp salt,
1 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon,
1 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning (or another tsp of
cinnamon).
A small hand full of pecans, dried coconut, dried cranberries,
light raisins, walnuts, 1/2 apple diced
add whatever else you would like.
On some of the items I use a 
large handfull............. 

In 1 cup of almond milk add 2 tsp vinegar and let
sit while you do the dry ingredients.

Wet ingredients - 2 eggs, 1 tsp coconut oil  (melted), 2 T honey,
milk.  Add to the dry ingredients, 
mix just until blended.
I use large muffin pans, fill cup liners, I get about
9 muffins.  I freeze them and will eat
about 1/2 muffin at break time.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or the toothpick
comes out clean.
Have a wonderful 2nd day of
Christmas week!
